The vanguard body is part of the vanguard armour set. It requires 85 Strength, Ranged, and Defence to wear, but not to obtain. It may be received after winning in the TzHaar Fight Pit - an interface will appear from which one of the three hybrid armour bodies can be chosen. The chance of receiving the body is increased if more games are won, and it can only be received if there is space in your inventory. It can also be bought from Stanley Limelight for 700 thaler. The body normally gives no bonuses and is cosmetic, but in Castle Wars, Soul Wars, Fist of Guthix and TzHaar Fight Pit, it does. The entire set gives a 15% damage bonus while playing those minigames, but it does not stack with the Castle Wars armour sets.
